Maddie Aldridge, the eight-year-old niece of Britney Spears, is said to be in a "serious condition" after being involved in an off-roading accident.


The little girl was a passenger in an ATV which flipped over according, to The Mail Online. 


Maddie is the daughter of Britney's younger sister Jamie-Lynn, who was not present at the time.


She was taking part in a hunting trip when the accident occurred.
